“Interesting Museum”

Museo del Foro de Caesaraugusta
Ranked #29 of 164 things to do in Zaragoza
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 October 2012

The Forum Museum is located beneath the plaza containing the Cathedral, at Plaza de la Seo, 2.
The plaza was built atop the ruins of the Roman Forum, which was built between the 1st century BC and the 1st century AD. The Forum was the center of activity of the Roman city, a meeting place for politicians, administrators, the economic life of the city, and the religious life. Around it were taverns and stores. In the museum one can see the columns used in the forum, a lot of pottery dug up, and parts of the sewer. The museum has very good explanations about the sewers and the running water in the city, brought to the city by aqueducts. Lead pipes brought water to every house during Roman times.

This is a fantastic museum, state of the art with brilliant presentations that bring the ruins to life. You actually descend into the archaeological excavations of the forum and walk the streets, and also the main drain -- the Augustan cloaca maxima. Very good models explain the construction. Not to be missed.

Yes, this museum is accessible, welcoming and informative. Well worth a visit. Most of the information is in English, video presentation in Spanish but you can get the idea from the English brochure. One for wheelies to support. Also wheelchair bathroom something difficult to find in Zaragoza. The conservation is impressive. Well done.
